Today (15th September 2021) consultation started for a traffic restriction order for changes to several junctions along the A23 and crossings on Manor Royal along with other road. There are also some alterations to bus lanes and bus stops. The response period is open until the 13th October.
All of these roads have been outlined in Crawley’s LCWIP, however none of the recommendations have bee followed, and in addition the proposed changes do not general guidance set out to not mix pedestrians & cyclists, as well as treating cyclists as vehicles.
Route “N” follows the A23. At all three junctions it is proposed to have “CYCLOPS junctions”, this has not been followed at all. It is suggest that a segregated two-way cycle track should be on the western side of the A23, instead these plans intend on improving the current shared use path on the Eastern side.
Route “O” follows Manor Royal. It recommends that one-way cycle tracks should be provided on either side of Manor Royal, instead we are going to end up with a shared two-way path on the Southern side.
Route “P” follows the Bridleway that Metcalf Way crosses, here it suggest a parallel crossing is provided along with other improvements to the Bridleway. It is currently not proposed to put a parallel crossing here.
